It is now confirmed that Keith Lee will not be on tonight’s Elimination Chamber pay-per-view following WWE’s decision to remove him from the show.
PWInsider reports that Lee was backstage last Monday but did not appear on the show and this news comes after reports that Vince McMahon is not sold on him. It’s unclear if that’s why he was pulled from the show, but advertisers have mentioned that a potential injury could prevent him from participating in pay-per-view.
PWI also noted that some in WWE believed that some sort of injury was preventing him from making the series. WWE has yet to confirm this is the case.
Lee was scheduled to wrestle in a triple threat match against champion Bobby Lashley and Matt Riddle.
